Thank you all so much for your warm welcomes! Thank you, mybulldogs, for guiding me in a good direction. I have so much to learn and eating to fit my chemistry is one thing I will have to learn.

Hi Angela welcome to the team.
Learn to use the nutrition tracker and the Fitness tracker. They are great! You can find them under the tab at the top of the page called my trackers.
It took you time to get where you are now, so take time to make changes. Find a few changes in your food and activities you can make, take a few weeks to get use to those changes then make a few more changes. You will be pleasently surprised how those small changes add up to a BIG change.

walk at least 10,00 steps a day. my sister lost 93 pounds just walking.

find foods that work with YOUR body chemistry.

i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 39 pounds .

i cook 4 large portabella mushrooms sliced, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 4 large onions sliced, 2 large green peppers, 3 cans green beans, 1 can rutabaga and 5 sliced chicken sausages. find foods that work with your chemistry. i created this meal on my own. i can't seem to loose weight if i eat any grain products. so one day i experimented.

it makes enough for at least 4 days, three meals a day. total cost is 12 dollars. i buy the mushrooms and chicken at sams club. sounds crazy but it taste good and most importantly it's working. i'm not hungry . if i feel the urge to cheat i go get a fork full of my mixture. i chew very slowly as to enjoy my meal.

i have added a small banana and grapes for my snacks and to be a fix for my sweet tooth.

you can add other foods into your menu. just know what works with your body chemistry.

I have gone from 198 to 159 pounds. i can now fit into a size 12 comfortably. i feel so much better. think of carrying a 2 year old around your waist every minute of every day. no i am not done. on the obese chart i have gone from being obese to just plain fat. my goal is to drop another 12 pounds. then i will be happy, healthy and never allow myself to get in this condition again.

one might say eating the same food every day would get boring. not true. when you look in the mirror and can see the difference it's worth

i went to the doctor. for the first time in a long time i was not ashamed to get on the scale. i did not have to get beet red because doctor said i was over weight. it felt great.
